lyrics

Dark Eyed Juncos are deep in the park
We've got a long way to go.
Fairy Wren and the Jewel Weed
Are deep in the ground or out across the sea.
Sidewalk is frozen. I'm tired of my coat, and the snow drifts in again.
I keep forgetting to bring my hat, and I'm shivering in the wind.
Only two people on this big city block
Who can't stop slow dancing to a silent song,
And it looks like you and me are the first sign of spring.
You and me are the first sign.
In a darkened bar, before I ever touched your face,
I made the inevitable profession of love.
But it didn't cross my lips, and it echoed in my skull.
When you were back at your place, you said the very same thing
When you were all alone in the dark.
And it looks like you and me are the first sign of spring.
You and me are the first sign.
